I believe in the video, when he says this, there's an "S" on the wall.

Re: The weird singing at the start of Hot Hot Hot!!!

It sounds to me like a line from the song "She", (you know the one, once covered by Elvis Costello  8) ).
Maybe it's: "She may be the song that summer sings", or something similar that Robert made up from that...

Yeah!  I definitely hear it like "She may.... something",  I always kinda hear "she may be the famous over you",  which is impossible and makes no sense,  but I like your interpretation better!

I thought it was "All the sounds of Charlotte Sometimes."

Erik

You've forgot my favorite.  At the beginning of Secrets, Robert whispers "keep quiet".

Descent

Ah, yes ! Secrets.

Hot Hot Hot : "She may be the face I can't forget"

Hmm, guess I won't be much of a help here. In Gone!, I only hear him go "one, two" and then something like dododo, badabada, and then the first lines: Oh you know how it is, wake up feeling blue, and everything that could be wrong is, including you...

Throw your foot is pretty much adlib all the way through, hehe. He repeats two parts of the song at the end, he just sings them a bit more incoherently. The second part, in the background, is from the beginning, and the first part is this, as far as I know:

it would be so perfect
if you would just fall out the window
throw your foot away
you're tired and your face is grey
like the sad old fool
you groove

Can't hear any lyrics sung backwards in New Day...

In Lovecats, all I hear is him making noises, meowing, or repeating words from the lyrics...

Is there a hidden beginning in It Used To Be Me? Or did you mean this part: all he needs is everyone I've been, and all she needs is everywhere I've seen...

Oh well, so much for trying to be helpful... :?

no Poe, Erik means the hidden/background/whispered lyrics, not the opening lines of those songs.

"one, two..." and then just some mumbling/"instrumental singing". i don't think there's anything else in there, really(?).

Quote from: Erik on April 04, 2008, 05:37:19

i've always just heard "this one this one this one..." repeated, but i don't know if that's what he really says there. but myself i find it being as part of the instrumental track really, and so i never really thought it was so important what the "lyrics" were.

Yeah, when I couldn't hear any hidden lyrics in the beginning of those songs, I just wrote what I heard, to flesh out the songs a bit, looking for the gaps...

I'm having trouble making out words, let alone sentences in the flexipop version of Lament...probably made sense to Robert at the time.  :smth043

by the way 8and unless you're familiar with it already), for "fleshing out" the lyrics of the cure songs, a must have is this:

songwords 1978-1989

Ooo, thanks, I hadn't heard about it before...guess I'll have to fight you for it then...  :smth062

Thought I could make out "I went to the man, and I said, 'just as you like..:" in Three....but oh jee, look at the time, I've got a life to catch! Before I go, remind me of why we need to know this again?!

Guess I know the answer already... :smth043
